Hello all,

This blog-post will detail how to get the apt package manager running on the Linux OS of the PLCnext. Thus opening up more possibilities for installing packages.

This post assumes you have some experience using Linux

Used materials:

  • AXC F 2152 with internet connection

Introduction

 

Hello everyone, here is the second tutorial about the IEC61850 standard, to follow it correctly, I strongly advise you to read the first one because I start from its end to continue the engineering.

Here is the link: https://www.plcnext-community.net/en/hn-makers-blog/658-straton-introduction-tutorial-1-data-exchange-between-plcnext-engineer-and-straton.html

We are not going to go through the standard, so this tutorial is aimed at people who are familiar with it.

This article will focus on one of the two communication protocols, the MMS (Manufacturing Message Specification), of this standard and will detail how to program it on straton.

Introduction

Hello everyone, I'm going to talk about the straton runtime and its programming environment around the IEC61850 standard. This runtime respects the standard Editition 2, a protocol which is in full evolution in the energy field.

In the past, Phoenix Contact has developed an IEC61850 stack for PCWORX and our former PLC range (AXC1050), today thanks to this application available on the store, it is possible to combine PLCNextEngineer and the IEC61850 standard. Moreover, this runtime offers the huge advantage of configuring a 61850 client, so the possibility to send commands. Something that didn't exist in the past, allowing to open other doors to the energy market.

I wanted to share what I was able to do. I plan to create several Makers Blogs about this standard.

Hello Everyone, this summer was my first time working with PLCnext technology and I wanted to share what I was able to do. More specifically, I worked with the eHMI technology in PLCnext Engineer. If any of you are like me and have no artistic abilities you may not want to draw up the screens from scratch and would rather use a set of images already drawn up for you by a graphic designer or someone similar. So, this is where I started.

The PLCnext function app easymon removes the hassle of setting up a remote monitoring of your control.
Instead of configuring all the nitty gritty bits and pieces of a cloud-based IoT services, it just leaves you with selecting your PLCnext project variables that you want to monitor on your mobile devices and setting notification thresholds.

Once you have your Phoenix Contact PLCnext Control data flowing to the cloud, it's time to create some Tableau Dashboards so that you can easily monitor everything. But first things first, let's get our PLCnext Control connected to Microsoft Azure.

Once you have your Phoenix Contact PLCnext Control data flowing to the cloud, it's time to develop some fast and efficient algorithms and Machine Learning models for real-time processing of the data. Azure Machine Learning empowers us with a wide range of productive experiences for building, training, and deploying machine learning models faster. IoT Ensemble provides out of the box APIs that allow you to easily load your PLCnext data into Azure Machine Learning. But first things first, let's get our PLCnext Control connected to Microsoft Azure.

Once you have your Phoenix Contact PLCnext Control data flowing to the cloud, it's time to setup alerts and notifications so that you can easily monitor everything. I prefer using Microsoft Logic Apps for sending email and text alerts when temperatures rise above a specified threshold. But first things first, let's get our PLCnext Control connected to Microsoft Azure.
